Our nature preserves are open to the public 365 days per year, providing natural places that offer peace and respite for all. We do love dogs, however... Because it is an important bird area (IBA) for nesting grassland birds who are very sensitive to the presence of dogs, they are not allowed at Kirkwood … Learn more about our nature preserves.
Fall Songbird Banding
Observe the science of bird banding, meet field biologists, and see beautiful migrant birds up close. Nature Keepers will get to “practice their banding skills” at a demo net. Also, bring your binoculars (or let us know if you need to borrow a pair) for a birding walk as we learn bird identification tips.
This event is Birds and Wildlife (Bird Icon), Healthy Habitat (Leaf Icon).
